The day started out with a very chilly, but sunny, soccer game. The best part: Grady Lee scored his first goal! Albeit, for the other team, but still, it was a goal.
After the game, we stopped home to change our muddy clothes and grab lunch. Then it was off to Carowinds for our last visit of the season. The boys enjoyed a "Howl-O-Fest" with lots of simple Fall activities geared for kids.
... until they realized there was trick-or-treating to be done! They were off to the races with the bazillions of other kids to get treats.
When Grady and I were sufficiently bored and tired of the Halloween fun and crowds, we headed into the amusement park for some rides. There were no lines and Grady enjoyed a trip on the new ride - the Intimidator - while the kids and I watched. I sure wish I could have gone, but will continue to smile and insist to Grady that "It's really okay. I'm just happy that you got to enjoy it, Babe. Maybe next summer I can. Besides, I had several people give me accolades for trooping around the park by myself with three kids under the age of five. It's all good!" (But inside, I'm a little, teeny-tiny bit sad. Just being honest.)
But, the smell of pumpkin pancakes and maple bacon woke them up, ready to eat! Uumm, both boys had three pancakes and four pieces of bacon. Should I be concerned that my toddlers ate more than me?
Family fun time... the stuff weekends were meant for.
